Grapes

Grape production is one of the oldest agricultural activities. There is a huge number of grape varieties worldwide used for the manufacture of wine (and its byproducts), raisins, and vinegar as well as for table consumption. Grapes have a known antioxidant and anticancer activity and are particularly cherished by Mediterranean people since antiquity.

Italy is the largest producer in the world by volume and Spain ranks first by total area of cultivation.

Greece is very active in this sector with the total area of vineyards exceeding 1.2 million acres. Proportionally, this accounts for more than 3% of total agricultural land in Greece.

In Suntip, we are involved in the production of table grapes for the domestic and (mainly) the international markets.
